My latest series, PORTALS, will be on display at Dark Horse Coffee Roasters in Normal Heights from June 6 - July 6, 2018.
PORTALS is an intuitive collage journey that was inspired by some themes I am exploring in my life lately. I love combining different mediums and processes together. PORTALS is a clash of almost all of my favorite mixed media techniques and mediums. There's even gold and silver mica flakes! Thematically, PORTALS is an expression of decontextualization of imagery and toying with the idea of the void. Here is my artist's statement:
I am really excited to have this extended run at Dark Horse and introduce my work to a whole new audience. If you are interested in checking out the show, click on the map below to see the location and find directions.
Additionally, this is the last time I will be showing a series for a while, so if you are interested in seeing this work, don't hesitate to make it out! I have really enjoyed working with a more abstracted and decontextualized style, but I feel that my inspiration with pure abstraction has sort of come to its conclusion and it's time for me to move on to newer things that are exciting me right now. I am going to go into a period of experimentation and start making more representational things and recontextualizing imagery. I'm still going to be working with collage, but now I will be doing it in a new way. I am so excited to share new things with you! I will be sharing a lot on social media so follow me at @stardustcoyoteart on Instagram to stay up to date and get all the behind the scenes looks. I will also be posting the entire PORTALS series here when the show comes down and adding any unsold work to my shop as well. At the end of summer, I will be participating in La Bodega Gallery's Zodiac show so there will be one more chance to see my work in person before summer's end.
Head to Dark Horse and check out PORTALS by July 6 and keep checking in here for new shop updates and things I'm working on.
